Catch Me a Colobus
A pot-pourri of humorous animal anecdotes concocted by the famous wildlife lover, leading conservationist and award-winning author of My Family and Other Animals. Endearingly funny, occasionally outrageous, Catch me a Colobos is classic Gerald Durrell.
Hectic, hilarious days at his Jersey zoo and forays to various corners of the earth to rescue animal species in danger of extinction provide a series of wonderful stories that are wry, witty and wonderful. Apes get loose, tigers get pregnant and women fall by the droves for a handsome zoo keeper . . .
